METALLURGY OF IRON" AND STEEL.
The different photographs in Fig. XV-B represent the appearance of steels of different carbon content. No. 3 is a steel containing 1.39 per cent, of carbon and is from a bar in the condition in which it left the rolls. It shows a pearlite grain surrounded by walls of cementite. Nos. 4 and 5 represent lamellar and granular

pearlite respectively. No. 6 is a steel containing .67 per cent, of carbon, the appearance of -which is similar-to No. 3, but there is really quite a difference, in that there is not a sufficient amount of carbon to' form the eutectic alloy. -Consequently there is an excess of ferrite and this forms the walls, whereas when the carbon ex-
